    AC condensation dripping down headers...

    Anyone else have a problem with there AC dropping onto there headers? As soon as i park i can hear it boiling off untill it cools down, then the water makes its way to the collectors and then drop right below leaving a puddle..

    Is there something i can wrap arround the compressor maybe??

    Thats normal on any car. The a/c lines are cold and its humid outside, so moisture collects on them. Think about if you bring a cold pop can outside when its hot out, same thing happens.

    What do you think about wrapping the lines in something??

    It the headers get real hot and then cold water drips on them, would that possibly crack the header (like an ice cude in cold water)?

    Nothing to worry about its normal, I wouldnt worry about the header or collector cracking.

    The consation isn't from the lines or the compresor its from the evap coils in the heater box, when you stop any frost that has build up melts as well as wny moisture and drains out he bottom, its normal and won't hurt anything.

    Add a short piece of extension hose to the drain where it comes thru the firewall and re-route it off to the side.
